Whether you loved, hated, or didn’t see Wall-E, it’s hard not to fall in love with the iDance Wall-E toy. Connect him to an audio source and Wall-E will dance around like an epileptic Billy Bass.
[Gian Pablo Villamil] at NYC Resistor wondered whether it would work with his custom made Rhythmic Synth, and to his and our delight, it does! The Rhythmic Synth is an older project of his; it is a simple rhythm generator with 4 pitch knobs, 4 modulation knobs, and 4 phase switches. The case was taken from an old external Iomega CD-ROM drive.
Getting the Wall-E to dance isn’t much of a feat, but something about the dancing combined with a synth with embedded lights just screams robot dance party, and that can never be wrong. We’d love to see the Wall-E dancing to a cleaner, more complete synth: maybe this one. Check out Wall-E busting a move after the break.

A robot that convulses to noise, what an achievement…
minus 1 point for Juan
-this doesnt deserve to be on Hday. There is nothing remotely hacked about this. This is what wall-e is supposed to do.
Cmon guys- you are way better than this!!!!
boring (and annoying).
stop repeating this bull
I don’t care what they say, Wall-E is clearly a rip of Johnny-5 of Short Circuit fame…
I think he meant
“it’s hard not to FAIL in love with the iDance Wall-E toy.”
while there are pictures of the rythmic sync build, there are no details. weak.
I recognize that CD-ROM drive… the iQue or something like that. It was awful.
Wall-E totally looks like the robot from “Short Circuit”… minus the cheesy 80’s style of course
